So hi and welcome to my blog, first post of many. After starting reading about psychology earlier this year and finding out about MBTI and what type I am, I felt that it explained a lot in my life and gave me answers to many questions I’ve had. I spent a lot of time reading and surfing the web for INFJ related information and after following http://www.infjanonymous.com/ for awhile I got the idea I would like to try my hand at blogging about this as well. I’m as of this post 24 years old, male INFJ, which makes me belong to the extreme minority in the world, approximately 0,5% of the total population. Needless to say I’ve felt different and alone all of my life and have yet to meet anybody I feel is like me.
I’ve taken countless MBTI tests (probably +30) and they all come back as INFJ. I tested ENFJ once and I probably had a very extrovert day that day. My mother is a ENFJ and my father is probably ISFJ or similar, maybe there is something to it with genetics as well. I took some tests that lists the % you scored on other types and the ones that showed up after INFJ was: INFP, INTJ, INTP, ENFJ. No sensor types at all which makes sense since I am highly intuitive.
For a living I do visual effects for movies and tv and I am successful in this. I love my job since it’s highly creative and I have always been good with that kind of work. I would sum my talents up to being creative, have an artistic eye, good at problem solving and at reading people and understanding them. People have called me psychic on many occasions and I often just know stuff before other people do. For example I know if I will get the job or not just from a feeling, if somebody likes me or not or if they are a good person just after meeting them for the first time. I always wondered where this came from and was happy to find out about INFJ’s and that I fit the bill perfectly.
However, there is not all positive stuff from being an INFJ. I would say I have suffered more from it then it have made me happy up to this point in my life. But looking back on recent years it’s been taking a turn for the better and moving in the right direction now in a steady pace. I am glad of who I am now and feel like I know myself better then I ever did. I will continue rambling on about what is on my mind in other posts.
My hope is that this blog might help or interest other INFJ’s and give me a chance to connect to more people like me. It will serve as an outlet for me and hopefully improve my writing skills since this is probably more then I have written in weeks. Thanks for reading, see you next post!
